Evidence of Absence: Verifying the Removal of Nuclear Weapons

18/10/2018, New York, USA

Credible, reliable, and accurate verification techniques and arrangements are an essential element of the nuclear disarmament process. This event, held on the margins of UN General Assembly First Committee in New York, launches a new UNIDIR study that outlines a procedure for verifying the removal of nuclear weapons. Agreement on such a procedure would be a valuable additional disarmament tool and may help create conditions for more comprehensive disarmament measures.

Support from UNIDIR's core funders provides the foundation for all of the Institute's activities. In addition, dedicated project funding was received from Estonia, Finland, and Sweden.

This conference is part of the project Verifying the Absence of Nuclear Weapons
